National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places. Now in its 22nd successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.
You will receive an email on Monday 23 May 2022 with links, downloads and all the information you'll need which will be available for the NSS week until Friday 27 May 2022. This will also include instructions for joining the live event.
Registered participants have access to a range of resources including videos, audio recordings and a PDF copy of the book.
